Happy Fall Ya'all. I know there will be those of you out there who will argue that it won't really be fall for another couple of weeks but in my book September/October/November are the fall months and it is September therefore it's fall. Do you all decorate for fall? I do. Not as much as I used to but I still make sure my home has the feel of fall inside and out. I plan to put up my orange lights and fall decorations in the next week or so. I'll add Halloween specific decorations around October 1st?
I have a new blog today about my new series set in Washington State.
I'm continuing my goal to have audio books produced for the Zoe Donovan series and will begin working on the books in the Holiday Bay series over the course of the next few months. Summerhouse reunion will come to audio in March, just in time for a spring release. I wonder what I should work on after that?
I have a new mini mystery for September. Clues will be offered on Sept 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, and 30th. A rafflecopter will be provided for your answer on the 30th.
By the way if any of you ever miss a newsletter for some reason or accidently delete it and then realize you need the clues from that week you can access recent newsletters here: https://bit.ly/32wMsT3

Twelve friends went to an apple farm for a day of apple picking and relaxation. Each friend brought a different dish to share at the communal picnic. While fun was had by all in the beginning, by the end of the day one friend had fallen from a ladder, one had suffered a serious sunburn, and one got sick from eating too many green apples. Use the clues presented on September 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, and 30th to figure out which friend fell from a ladder, which suffered a sunburn, and which ate too many apples and got sick. A rafflecopter will be provided on September 30th for you to provide your answer.

Clues: Josie who brought the potato salad did not get a sunburn or fall from a ladder
